When the 'unsinkable' White Star liner, RMS Titanic, struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage across the Atlantic on 14 April 1912, she sank with the loss of 1,503 lives; 705 survived the disaster. This compact, authorative narrative is supported by a fascinating selection of archive illustrations, some of which have not previously been published. Packed with revealing facts about the fateful ship, the story tells of why the ship was built and the events that led to her loss.
